The hostel was good value for money in a good location not far from the busy center but still a quiet location. There was a big supermarket and the zoo nearby. Facilities are a bit outdated but the rooms are clean. Typically for the older buildings, the stairs are narrow and deep, which wasn't a problem since we only had backpacks. Breakfast was simple, but being included to the price it was good enough. Not a place to meet other travelers but perfect for couples or friends travelling together.


Very clean, with friendly staff. About a 10-15 minute walk from center which was perfect for us. Basic facilities, but we got exactly what we paid for and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Also offers very great value bike rental. Bonus!
